Depends on the kind of rewards.

aren't rewards, bribery?

The test included following God's commands on Earth, which I suppose includes worshiping too.


What would you think of the person who made the following offer ?:

If somebody told you that if you worship him or her, you will get rewards

Yes followers of Jesus would be spreading covenant onto Children of Israel.

And [mention] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, "O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad." But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, "This is obvious magic." 61:6

Tell me about the "covenant", what is that ?

Hellenistics influence will be about having several divine figures or more than 1 form of Gods , able to  manifest into human forms on earth.

Non hellenistic will be that who adhering to the same covenant of God e.g Noahites, Israelites having only 1 form of God unique and singular.

The Koran and Allah existing through eternity is similar to the Word and God existing as two throughout eternity

h Hellenistic Chrisitan books

what is the difference between hellenistic and non-hellenistic christian books ?

memorizing, writing down revelations in scrolls/books and spreading to the people are the way of all companions of the Messengers of God.

What did God say to the followers of Jesus regarding the books that the followers were spreading ?

why not give the test,

The test included, worshipping God, right ?

Don't know for sure. Probably to show the purpose of this life, of why we were created, of why there is a heaven and hell or the logic behind religion etc.

The author did not reveal the most important question : why give the test when God knew people would fail ? and apparently, the souls also knew at least one of them would fail

Probably, but the scarcity of information that Islamic doctrine provides on the matter makes such conclusions, at the end of the day, nothing more that just speculation.


What was the author's purpose in reporting such a story ?

We don't know how many will fail the test, it is for God to decide who passes and who fails.

So the souls knew that at least one human would fail the test, since God told them that at least one will fail

the early Jewish followers of prophet Jesus spread the teachings onto Israelites.
the followers of prophet Muhammad spread the teachings onto mankind.

So did Allah ask the followers of Jesus to spread the book to only Jews or to all mankind, like the Koran ?

in John 1:1. In fact Word was with God. Two figures in that verse.

Similar to the Koran is with Allah, two who were not created but existed as two through eternity

memorizing, writing down revelations in scrolls/books and spreading to the people are the way of all companions of the Messengers of God.

how widespread was the spreading of the books of the followers of Jesus and the Koran ?

I presume the way you approach concept of One God is that He splits Himself into few forms. He split into Father, split into Spirit and split into Word. Thus He exist in 3 forms at the same time. But all three entities are still one same God.
But is such concept even supported by John 1:1?

The reason John 1:1 supports one God is because

 in the beginning, God and His Word were one and the same, just as the Koran and Allah are one and the same but in the case of Jesus,

 the Word became flesh

It should have been in God's knowledge, yes.

Since God is not deceptive, He must have told the souls that they ( billions in fact), will fail  the test
